A couple months ago I attended a Bible Study of A Confident Heart, by Renee Swope. Gathering and sharing with friends was heart-warming and deeply comforting. Here is a small excerpt from the book.
Excerpts taken from Chapter 8:
—When we don’t know what our heart’s desires are, we tend to spend our lives fulfilling the desires of others. It’s time to ask ourselves the questions: “Am I doing what God may be calling others to do, while leaving undone what He is calling me to do?”—
—What about you? Do you listen to the desires of your heart and live from your God-given passions, or do you serve from a sense of duty and obligation?—
—If you want to know your purpose, pursue the heart of God and you’ll have a head-on collision with your calling.—
Trust in the LORD with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.
I do agree with this, Julia, and that scripture from Proverbs has long been one of my favorites.
Jeanette, I love to see how your life has changed over the years. You’re living that verse. :)
comment from another Janette….thanks for the gentle reminder, Julia, of where God wants our hearts to be.
